Today people have a high regard for UNP policies ? Karu Jayasuriya

    It is no doubt that the country witnessed all the development schemes being implemenetd for the future good of the country only during the UNP regime. This includes the Free Education scheme implemented by the forefathers of the UNP and the Accelarated Mahaweli Develpment under the JR Jayawardene Government.The Slfp had planned to implement the Mahaweli Development within 25 years and the UNP did it within five years.

    On the contrary when the SLFPO was in power the people were made to starve. The people of Sri Lanka cannot forget how a loaf of bread was distributed to each household by the Janatha Commiitees. Miulk powder was issued to birth certificates and the brides and bridegrooms were made to queque up at Textile Shops with a certificate from the Grama Savakas to buy five yards of clothes for the wedding ceremony. People were told to eat Manioc and Batala on Friday and Monday.The fampus miris pollas and hal polllas are not forgotten by the people. see what is happening today. The government of Ranil Wickremesinghe who imrproved the economy and the growth rate and broght down inflation no doubt implemented a series of unpopular proposals like cutting down on new employment etc for the good of the country and ultimately paid the heavy price for it at the Presidential elections.

    But lo0ok at what is happening in the country today. See how much the workers and farmers suffer owing to inability of the new government to fulfill the promises made to the voters which wrere aimed at winning at the polls.

    Karu Jayasuriya must find out his position in the party or get out. He is just working hard for nothing. This party is not for majority Sri lankans.

    Bheesan,

    [This party is not for majority Sri lankans.]

    Such a statement would be more aplicable to a party like the JVP or JHU. Maybe you should look at the election results from the presidential election. 50.29% for MR and 48.43% for Ranil. Mind you, this does not include the people deprived of voting.

    UNP is dead now. Let it be berried and no excavation needs arising post mortems.

    Ranil did a great job to our Mother Lanka by providing a safe passage to LTTE TERRORISTS in to anywhere in the country without no questions asked , without no checks being done.

    Good for you Ranil, today we taste the sweetness of LTTE sour suicide bombs IN COLOMBO. Thank you Ranil ( G & P Ranil). Triple Gem bless you and please rest in peace. Karu! please help Ranil.

    Looks like people have already forgotten all the other successful suicide attacks of the LTTE, IN COLOMBO EVEN BEFORE THE CFA WAS SIGNED AND EVEN WHEN TIGHT SECURITY WAS AVAILABLE. And people say that Ranil is everything wrong with Sri Lanka.

    Magey Chinthana, give me a break.

    All our problems are because of the CFA. Before the CFA the central bank was not attacked, the Kolonnawa oil refinery was not attacked, the World Trade Centre was not attacked, Navy Commander was not killed, Neelan Thiruchelvam was not attacked, Army camps in the north and east were not attacked, we did not lose Elephant Pass, Dalada Maligawa was not attacked, Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi was not attacked, Bhikkus were not killed in Aranthalawa, Kent Dollar farms were not attacked, our leading politicians were not killed, Prime minister`s office was not attacked, the Pettah bomb, Maradana bomb, Town hall bomb did not take place, the Joint Operations Command was not attacked the Airport was definitely not attacked and .... oh please please stop it, none of these dreadful attacks took place because the LTTE could not come in to Colombo before the CFA was signed you see ?..

    The pseudo-patriots are sahmelessly putting their heads out one by one even after P. (Percy) Mahinda following P. Ranil`s policies continuously!
